John Griffin (front) was recongized by the Botetourt County Board of Supervisors during its October meeting. The board passed a resolution honoring the former Botetourt Planning Commission member for his 14 years on that commission from 2004-2018. Griffin resigned from the commission because he moved out of the Fincastle Election District, which he represented for those 14 years. Brandon Nicely was appointed in September to fill the Fincastle District seat. Behind Griffin are (from left) Supervisors Steve Clinton, Mac Scothorn, Jack Leffel, Ray Sloan and Billy Martin.                               Photo by Ed McCoy
